# Beyond Pythagoras

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Beyond Pythagoras

The numbers 3,4 and 5 satisfy the condition;

3+4=5

Because        3=3x3=9

4=4x4=16

5=5x5=25

Therefor

The numbers 5,12

Middle

Because        5=5x5=25

12=12x12=144

13=13x13=169

Therefor

And the numbers 7,24 and 25 satisfy the condition too;

7+24=25

Conclusion

2+2n)+(2n2+2n)+(2n2+2n+1) is the paremeter and (2n+1)(2n2+2n)
